Related to Civil 3D 2013. I'm trying to use the curve calculator to obtain values of a curve. The problem is the value for Degree of Curvature is 00d00'00" everytime. Is this broken in 2013 or is there some ambient setting I need to set? I've attached a screen shot.
Have you installed the Service Pack? I have, and it appears to work correctly for me. Although the readme does not say this was an item that was corrected.
I get the same result with the curve calculator and I do not have the service pack installed.
I tried this on my 2011 version with all service packs installed and the curve calculator worked normally.
2013 SP1 and "0" for degree of curve here.
Can you post your test drawing to make sure it's not a drawing thing. I did try with my template AND the NCS standard though.
OK, so looks like there is a bug when selecting the curve. If you input the values to calc a curve, without first selecting a curve, the DoC works correctly. As soon as you select an arc in the drawing, the unit arc length gets set to 0.
I have the same issue in 2011, with the service packs installed. To make it work, change the "Fixed .." from Delta to Radius. Then input the info you want and see if it doesn't work. Aggravating, but it works.
Could you please elaborate a bit more how to get the dialogue box that you are showing in the screenshot (curve calculator)?
From the "home" tab, under the "draw" panel last on on the list.
Many thanks Bruce. I got it
Is it possible to modify the units precision for the Curve Calculator? Changing the settings under"Units" has no effect nor does changing the settings in the Survey Database.
